Review: STEALING THE GOLDEN DREAM is the second book in the Jordan Welsh and Eddie Marino series, the first being STEALING THE MOON & STARS. Shea Investigations has been hired to guard the unique and priceless Dahlonega Golden Dream Coin Collection. When the coins are stolen and their employee (and friend) is murdered, the whole agency is affected. In a nasty turn of events, Eddie is accused of and arrested for the crimes, but Jordan knows Eddie would never jeopardize their company nor kill one of his best friends. It’s up to Jordan and Eddie to clear Eddie’s name and restore the company’s reputation. STEALING THE GOLDEN DREAM is a good solid mystery with well-developed characters and some unexpected twists along the way. I loved the characters, the setting, and the complexity of the mystery. STEALING THE GOLDEN DREAM solidified my following Jordan, Eddie, and the rest of Shea Investigations through their future exploits.
